Amos Farnsworth gives a humorous account of the reasons Groton people have to be proud of themselves; for example, they had the wisdom to see the fitness of Wendell Phillips for governorship. Farnsworth visited New Bedford and walked perhaps six miles at night in the moonlight with Silas Hawley. He describes Hawley's fortunate position with the New Bedford church. Farnsworth met and liked "the Rev. Mrs. Peabody" of New Bedford. He attended the county meeting in Stoneham, which was small. The Baptist minister Mr. Cole spoke "out-Garrisoning Garrison;" but Farnsworth was told that Mr. Cole's abolitionism would soon evaporate. Joshua Leavitt is coming to Boston. Leavitt "can't get bread where he is. He is an expensive dog, & new org. will have to work hard to raise the where with all to feed him." Elizur Wright "had not enough fight in him to please his employers." Farnsworth believes Elizur Wright was dragooned into the controversy. Charles T. Torrey works hard for his living. Farnsworth tells of his own "cozy" domestic arrangements. J. N. T. Tucker is expected and will preach Christian Union.
Description: 1 leaf (4 p.) ; 9 3/4 x 7 3/4 in.
